"In a field characterized by sometimes outlandish claims of miracle cures, it is good to have a book that is marked by careful analysis, sound research, and clear-headed thinking. This is 'must' reading for clinicians and researchers alike, and will also be invaluable in educational and training settings." --Gerald C. Davison, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Southern California
"Studies indicate that nearly 9% of the United States population will experience the serious syndrome of PTSD at some point in their lives. Accordingly, knowledge of what works and what doesn't work to help people with PTSD recover is essential to the practicing mental health clinician. Foa, Keane, and Friedman have brought together leading experts to provide the first comprehensive set of guidelines regarding treatment of this disorder. Based on the best available scientific evidence, recommendations are appropriately qualified by clinical experience and the limitations of the research studies. This volume sets a new standard for practice guidelines. It will likely become the 'bible' for clinicians and investigators who seek information on PTSD treatment, as well as for graduate-level courses in psychotherapy, trauma, and mental health services." --Paul Crits-Christoph, PhD, Director, Center for Psychotherapy Research; Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania

Since the format emphasizes research-based discussions of each treatment's strengths, weaknesses, proper applications, cautions, etc., obviously the well-established, well-researched strategies get more space. In every case, the chapter authors are fair, practical, open-minded, and thorough, with none of the snide or patronizing attitude too often present in books that review a broad array of customary and alternative assessments or treatments.
I came away deeply impressed by the concern and compassion all of these clinician-researchers have for their patients, and their expressed awareness that the needs of the person being treated, not the diagnosis - and not scientific purity - must always be the priority. They also show attentiveness to the needs and difficulties facing clinicians. All this in a book that is scientifically and technically very sound, written in a clear, intelligent prose.
I'd recommend this book to someone who is completely unfamiliar with treatments for PTSD and is interested in a broad overview of most of the popular treatments in use today. I wouldn't recommend this book if one is interested in a clinical handbook for the treatment of PTSD.
Please read this book if you want a step by step path of what these problems are and that is PTSD and CPTSD. A wonderful resourse written in easy english for us all to understand and to learn that you cannot do it your self.
